A Parent’s Prayer at the Start of the New School Year

Heavenly Father,
As we begin this new academic year,
we ask You to send Your blessing

On our newly admitted and returning students:
help them to reach their full academic potential
and to realize their dreams;

On their parents:
give them peace at this stressful time;

On our parent volunteers
who gave of their time to be with the parents
of our incoming freshman;

On our distinguished faculty:
allow their wisdom and experience
to enrich all those they encounter;

On the ABVM Staff
who keeps this beautiful campus running;

We ask the Blessed Mother, whose School this is,
to extend her special protection
upon all who study, teach or serve here.

May the blessing of Almighty God,
who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
descend upon us all now
and remain with us forever.   Amen.
